Taster glass. I think we may want to separate true Radlers from fruit beers, as a finished beer with juice or soda added before packaging is a different animal than one fermented with fruit. For one, this is intended to be low-alcohol, and for two, it’s not fair to be comparing this to a DFH Fort. That said, this is pretty tasty. Does not hide the fact that it’s light in alcohol, though probably the grapefruit adds some sugar calories. In fact, it does have a bit of an added sugar taste that might have been meant to keep the grapefruit from souring up the works. Not a world-beater, but recommended if I were ever actually "on the go."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy yellow-orange color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades almost instantly, leaving almost no foam or lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a grapefruit citrus smell with some other smells of lemon and orange. Along with the Taste – The taste begins with a very sweet citrus flavor with the citrus being a blend of orange and a little bit of grapefruit. These flavors create a base flavor for the brew remaining throughout to the end. A very light herbal and grassy flavor join these tastes later on, producing in the end a rather sweet and fruity spiked citrus soda like flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high. For the fruity soda like nature of the brew the feel is fantastic and makes for a very refreshingly sweet brew.
Overall – While more soda like then beer, it is a good summer beverage that would be fantastic for a hot summer day when doing yard work.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque pastel yellow pour. This smells like grapefruit soda. No beer scent discernible. Flavor is grapefruit, sugary and tart. The finish is all corny beer. Fizzy mouthfeel. You could drink a million of these, but why not just stick with grapefruit soda. Beer adds nothing.

Pours opaque yellowish orange, looks exactly like golden beer mixed with grapefruit. Smells fruity and tart. Very refreshing although it doesn’t feel like you’re drinking beer, juicy and crisp without any off flavours. Refreshing summer fruit drink, but doesn’t feel like beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014-12-04. Hazy pastel yellow body with a tiny white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly fruity, sweet grapefruit character. Flavour is similar, sweet grapefruit. Just tart enough to be refreshing, I’d prefer more so for my own tastes. Smooth average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Pretty nice. Simple but quite quaffable. Enjoyable. Can from the LCBO, Toronto

Poured from a bottle. Not a fan of the appearance -- like someone waves out a bottle of oj. Little aroma, but refreshing citrus blend, not really grapefruit.

Bottle from local Spar, smells lovely fresh fruity grapefruit. But it tastes very artificial.
